Conquer The Concrete With New Balance’s 997H Cordura Sneaker

Jul 29, 2019

Category: Style

Thanks to the advent of technical materials, our favorite sneakers just keep getting better and better. Gone are the days of soaked shoes and worn-through soles; remnants of a horrific past where fabrics like GORE-TEX and ripstop nylon weren’t available for use by manufacturers. Now, iconic platforms like the New Balance 997 are ready for anything you can throw at them — especially when they’re lined in durable, hard-wearing Cordura.

The newly-revealed NB 997H Cordura recall the brand’s original cult-classic 997 for an exceptionally detailed update. To celebrate one of the sneaker world’s most influential silhouettes, the transcendental icon has been revitalized and outfitted with a Cordura nylon liner, helping to weather the storm against excessive wear, cuts, scrapes, or abrasions. Coincidentally, the implementation of DuPont’s wondrous fabric has made New Balance’s 997H a coveted piece of technical footwear. The shoe is available in three different colorways — Incense/Moroccan Tile, Blue/Varsity Orange, and Rifle Green/Sulphur Yellow — immersing fashion-forward buyers in a menagerie of tasteful choices. Head to New Balance’s website to grab your own for $90.
